Hello Everyone, I want to grow a large vegetable garden this year with raised beds. My husband has agreed to help me make it beautiful and plentiful and also put up a wooden fence around it to keep the chickens out I am so anxious to start seeds I can't stand it. I have three small children who will also benefit from seeing a plant go from seed to garden to table. I have heard of people starting seeds in their closets with lights on them. I am thinking I would get one of those things at walmart where you can start seeds and they have the clear lid. I need some simple advice as to when I can start seeds, when to turn a light on them and how far away the light should be? Also, what wattage? I live in KY and would like to start things like peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, etc. Any help is greatly appreciated.
